Management board and advisory board

Management Board

A management board is established in the research group of the Methusalem researcher. This board directs the scientific policy of the group and consists of at least the professorial staff that is connected to the research group. The Methusalem professor is chairperson.
In case of a collaborative partnership between two or more universities, a single management board is established. One of the Methusalem professors is chairperson and the other Methusalem professor(s) is/are co-chair.

Advisory Board

The research group, or groups in case of a collaborative partnership, also needs to establish an international advisory board, consisting of researchers who have gained international recognition in their scientific field. This advisory board helps, amongst other things, to outline the long-term research policy and to establish priorities in the research agenda.
